For someone visiting Rotterdam for the first time It was a fun way to explore the city. The route took in all the main sights, with the flexibility to decide which ones you wanted to visit in more detail, or to stop for refreshment. Some clues were very challenging (but solvable with hints) others were easy. It took me 6 hours with several breaks for refreshment. For me it missed out the Market Hall (although this should be obvious from the Cube Houses) and Euromast. I continued my walk to visit the latter.

We have never had so much fun in a museum.

My grandson 15 years and I were thrilled with the 9 stations you could complete. The museum harbor was also interesting. He learned various sailor knots on a ship. He was very proud. A great day for us.

We had a lot of fun with the tasks. Some tasks are similar, so you could perhaps bring in other ideas, but overall we had seen a lot for the first time in Rotterdam and learned a lot of new things

The Citycard is very practical and convenient. Great facility

We explored the city in an interactive way . Very nice!
